Wow, that's tricky.
The description (following) doesn't say if it's in the plicata pattern or not. All it says is "Amethyst self". There isn't even a color of the beard or appendage.
I'd put a request out to the HIPS group, to see if they have a definitive answer. (Sorry, but I really can't say which one is correct!)
'Horned Amethyst' (Lloyd Austin, R. 1959). Sdlg.
J-La-40. TB, 36" (91 cm), M. Color Class-V1, Amethyst self, horned
beard. Sdlg. X 'Pink Tower'. Rainbow 1960.

I googled some pictures for 'Horned Amethyst'. Only one, from Bluebird Haven, resembles the decription, a self. The others (4) are all plicatas.
So which is correct?
